These files are used at the user account creation screens, after XP install's, and at some little tutorials.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
They are all in the E:/I386 directory of your "Microsoft XP" disc , where E:/ is the name of your
CD\DVD -ROM\RAM drive.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!ATTENTION !!! Copy them onto a folder on your hard disk (or partition) if you want to modify
them. Directly from CD\DVD you'll not be able to edit them because they're read-only, and it's not
accepting writing operations.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But, those backgrounds only spidermannet4@yahoo.com , or moomamax@yahoo.com knows how to add. Please contact him and see which files are responssible with them.

P.S and for late i want to tell that I went in a new town, and untill i moved all the things, stuff , etc even my PC it past a while. Please don't get upset on me.

Oh.. and You should know something...

Copy the following codes into a new text document and after that save each one with " .bat " extension. I used for renaming expanded files, that preserve the original name :

ex: if you expand a file, let's say "something.JP_" it still remain with the same name, only the size is increasing when you type something like :
""C:\XPCD\ expand *.JP_ C:\XPCD2\ "" in a CMD window.


Here is your code :
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

@echo off
ren *.JP_ *.JPG

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You may put whetever extension did you wish in place of JP_ and JPG tags. Examples.. HT_ it will become HTM, GI_ will become GIF, etc, etc...

Hope I helped. Ohh, and for those who knows how to save in .bat after it was written in .txt open a "MyComputer" window (Explorer.exe or Win + E) point to "Tools "and then go to "Folder Options" (even from Control Panel if you still don't find it) and after this go at "View" tab, and in that list search for "Hide Extensions For Known File Types". If it's marked, unmark it. Press apply, then oki, and you should see the changes.

I have also uploaded a few batch scripts..sorry if I mistake with their names, my first language isn't english, soo I do not spell too well.
Feel free to download them and edit, for see how are created.
Please the advanced users, don't come up with critics, only with help, because this comunnity it was created for helping each others.

Thank You, Blackmodder 2008.

Hi, I suggest taking a look at the files in your %SystemRoot%\System32\oobe\images folder, regarding the first two screenshots - keep in mind that it forms the background image by displaying multiple images, it isn't just one...

EDIT: Typo.

"%SystemRoot%\System32\oobe\images" ,Thank you, this is usefull for searching faster which file it is responssible,but I find those posted upthere directly from source code on html pages posted there, in a harder way than you find, but I wanna modify compressed files, not uncompressed ones. For what I need to modify uncompressed where XP never use them and crash ?!?.
So, here we speak about files like backdown.gi_ ..... not bacdown.GIF, because the XP will never use them in a uncompressed form.

Anyway, thank's for share, it is a really good find.

P.S - What is the opposite command of expand ? I tried shrink, defract,makecab compress.exe from Pixelcart and it never compress me any file. On google I found only what's I usualy expect, only dead links and with none answer.

Those are the files that XP used, they're exactly the same ones, but expanded and renamed already... just make the changes working with those files, compress them using "makecab filename" (opposite of expand) and replace the originals in the \i386 folder of the source.

EDIT: During the first oobe run, it uses the files mslogo.jpg (top logo), newbtmX.jpg (bottom background), newmarkX.jpg (center background), newtopX.jpg (top background, mslogo.jpg is overlayed). I do not know for sure whether it uses the "1" set (newbtm1.jpg, newmark1.jpg, newtop1.jpg) or the "8" set.

While you are at it, the Windows Product Activation (oobe.exe /a) backgrounds can also be modified there, the file names being wpaback.jpg, wpabtm.jpg, wpaflag.jpg, wpakey.jpg, wpatop.jpg

It seems the setup text can be modified by editting \i386\usetup.exe with a resources editor.

Great find, but you can also modify the text directly from htm_ pages. Off course they must be expanded first and then with makecab.exe compressed again, and putted onto I386 root. But \i386\usetup.exe is also a nice find. Thank you. You did a great job.
